ABSTRACT

Extended Appearance of Dryvax-brand Smallpox Vaccine   [open pdf - 40KB]

"Dryvax-brand smallpox vaccine is stored as a freeze-dried (i.e., lyophilized) powder until use. Before administration, the powder is returned (i.e., reconstituted) to the liquid state by addition of a diluent (i.e., diluting fluid) containing 50% glycerin, 0.25% phenol, plus sterile water. The reconstituted vaccine ready for administration is a suspension of viral particles in the diluent."
